We'll meet by the marina to say hello and to go over all the necessary safety information such as how to use a life jacket, where they are located on the boat, and how we can all practice safe social distancing while sitting separately on the boat in the open air. I will explain all the safety features of Enchantress (the sailboat), and answer any questions regarding the tour. After that we board the boat and set sail! After exiting the marina on the boat we make our way around Governor's Island with views of the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center, and the Brooklyn Bridge. There is plenty of time to take pictures and if any guests ask, I can give some basic sailing instruction and maybe even let them pilot the boat if they are nice. :) The total trip should take around two and half hours. After going around governor's island we will return to the marina where everyone will disembark the boat and exit the marina.
Hi my name is Ian. I've lived in Brooklyn for ten years and love to share my joy of sailing and nature with guests. I'm the owner of Enchantress, a beautiful 1994 Catalina 34 sailboat. I have a USCG (United States Coast Guard) Master sailing license, I'm certified in CPR, and have spent years living and sailing around the Atlantic East Coast. I once solo sailed the Bahamas for a Winter and had friends visit me along the way. I look forward to meeting you and going out for a sail around NY Harbor!

We'll go around Governor's Island with views of the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center, and the Brooklyn Bridge. Small groups of six with plenty of room for social distancing--this is the best and safest way to enjoy a great day out on the water and a really great way to see the city!
